Fish and Wildlife Conservation Offices are a network of field stations located throughout the nation that work to conserve fish and aquatic resources.
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Offices work on aquatic species and habitat conservation projects across the country. Staff biologists provide technical assistance to tribes and collaborate on fishery restoration efforts. They also conduct scientific studies into fishery problems, restore habitat, and coordinate conservation efforts with partners to conserve migratory fish that cross multiple jurisdictions. Habitat loss, fragmentation, and degradation are some of the primary factors in the decline of native species, while threats from pollution andare worsening water and habitat quality. To combat these threats, Fish and Wildlife Conservation Offices work with Tribes, states, and other partners to identify conservation goals restore aquatic habitat.
